The Christmas Gala, Inc. founded by Cheryl Campbell, began as a family and friends function held at her home every year. Cheryl, putting her heart and soul into this organization, wanted so badly to make the event much larger to be able to help more of our local seniors.

With the assistance of the social workers and private referrals The Christmas Gala has been able to expand from Bristol Township, covering a larger area consisting of Bristol Township, Bensalem, Bristol Borough, and Morrisville.
